Win 2 Killer Mason Jar Iced Teas and 2 Tickets to see ORLEANS 40th Anniversary Concert

Look for the GMG booth at the Waterfront Festival on Saturday and get your Killer Mason Jar Iced Teas.  While you’re there, be sure to enter to win 2 more iced tea jars, plus 2 tickets to the once-in-a-lifetime concert at North Shore Music Theatre on August 31 starring Gloucester legend, Fly Amero‘s touring band ORLEANS featuring the band’s founding songwriter/guitarist John Hall with John Cafferty (of the Beaver Brown band and cult film classic, Eddie & the Cruisers).  Award-winning Gloucester singer/songwriter Allen Estes opens the show.

Speaking of Allen Estes, he’s also opening the Harbor Loop concert tonight and has a great new song that needs a name (click here if you want to try to name it).  He’ll most likely play it tonight.  Dan King follows and then Safety rocks the night away.  And that’s just the tip of the entertainment iceberg tonight.  See the full live music lineup here.


  • to make the world even smaller…John Hall played at Stonehenge, at 4 South Main St., Ipswich, 40 years ago, AND another act that played there regularly was a band called Cricket Hill, the lead singer of said band was Helen Schneider, who played the female lead in the same movie, Eddie and the Cruisers, which Cafferty provided the soundtrack for…where did the 40 years go?


    • Great stuff. I saw Orleans at a concert in Woodstock NY exactly 40 years ago with Bonnie Raitt, Paul Butterfield and others. All were spectacular — especially Orleans. Then a few months later John Hall picked me up hitchhiking from Woodstock to New Paltz. I believe he took me as far as Kingston. He probably doesn’t remember that.


      • I was one on the “worker bees” at Stonehenge which is why I remember John and the other musicians who performed there…the next, and only other time, that I had contact with him was when I was selling ski supplies to “The Pro, Ski and Sport” at Hunter Mountain in New York State…while there, the ski “bootfitter” Keith asked me to assist to correct a fit issue with one of the ski instructors at the mountain, a period of time into the adjustment, I realized that it was John, we had fun remembering the good times at Stonehenge…as I said before…Small World.
